Donnelly gets his pick for Indiana Democratic chairman

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Sen. Joe Donnelly's pick to become the new Indiana Democratic Party chairman won't face any challengers for the position.

Democratic Party officials announced that veteran Capitol Hill staffer John Zody was the only person to meet Wednesday's deadline to be considered for the chairmanship when the state central committee votes on its leadership Saturday.

Zody has worked as former U.S. Rep. Baron Hill's chief of staff and most recently led President Barack Obama's re-election effort in the Midwest. He would replace Dan Parker, who has led the state party for eight years. Zody has been teaching at Indiana University in Bloomington.

No change in leadership is coming to the state Republican Party because GOP Gov. Mike Pence has asked party chairman Eric Holcomb to stay in that job.
